In its first internet banking foray, M.Y. Safra Bank (MYSB) introduced its Online Promo CDs in March 2017. In the past 16 months, the Online Promo CD APYs have continued to rise, with the 12-month seeing the most rate increases (21) and the greatest gain (115 bps). The most recent rate increase occurred yesterday when MYSB added five bps to the 12-month Online Promo CD (2.51% APY). A minimum of $5k of new money is required to open any of the Online Promo CDs.

While MYSB also raised the rate of the 60-month Online Promo CD (3.11% APY) and added a new 72-month Online Promo CD (3.15% APY) this week, the 12-month is clearly the most competitive of the Online Promo CDs.

As stated in the Truth-In-Savings Disclosure (page 24), the Early Withdrawal Penalty (EWP) reads as follows:

The penalty will be an amount equal to the greater of credited or 90 days interest.

M.Y. Safra Bank’s online application includes this statement,

If funding your new accounts by electronic transfer from another financial
institution, please have ready their routing number and your account number.

Based on that statement, I thought that funds from a maturing CD might be distributed in the same manner. I was wrong. According to CSR, the Bank’s standard practice is to issue a check upon maturity, but the funds could be sent by wire for a $20 fee.

In the course of our conversation, CSR also mentioned that Social Security numbers are required when naming any beneficiaries.

According to the promo page fine print, the Online Promo CDs can be opened by “U.S. natural persons depositing new funds” and must be opened online.
